Re: Modern Medieval Armored Combat

Hey, Blasphemous, thanks for posting about this! I had never heard of this before this thread. Watched some videos and, wow, impressive!

Re: Modern Medieval Armored Combat

Just ring mail would defeat human teeth. Hand weapons conserve ammunition. Yes being in shape would be necessary. My personal harness is a 15th century Italian full plate setup with a sallet helmet. I'll attach a picture when I can find a good one. For normal fighting, we don't normally wear maille...

This is more of a hobby, lol. However, I could see how it could be applied.
It does require some physical conditions and stamina, neither of which can't hurt to have.

Modern Medieval Armored Combat

Hello everyone... I have been away for a LONG time. However, I'm making a come back. I did want to make some contacts within my hobby both in the St Louis area and possibly (if we haven't already found you) within the Louisville, KY area. I do medieval combat in period correct armor, albeit there ar...

Re: So my wife bought me a EAA SAR B6P in 9mm...

Well, we figured out today one of the reasons why I can't hit shit, the pistol is hitting about a foot low at just 10 yards. I put a hundred rounds through it at my buddy's place today and had trouble from the git-go. It wasn't until after I'd shot well with his .45 and .38 that we really started l...

Re: Pics of XM855 and XM193 groups at 100 yards...sadness en

Practice with what you buy. If I buy something in bulk (which I do most of the time), I have my rifle doped for that ammo. Generally, the settings will be good for the entire run, but variances may occur. As long as you are doing everything right as a shooter, you can dial in your shot group. Try no...

I have spent a lot of years in the military and I think these things would be PERFECT for members in the field.

I have had a B6P for a while, have maybe 300 rounds through it, and I'll share my thoughts. Initial Reaction: I bought the gun on a whim, knew nothing about it. I just saw it online, it was cheap and I wanted a 9mm full size, this firearm looked good for me. When it arrived, I liked the feel of the ...

Re: Japanese Mini-Truck?

what is the advantage of a mini-truck over a UTV? it looks to me like a gator, of bobcat would do the same and more, for around the same price. what am I missing? It looks as if Bulldog Offroad no longer sells them. This vendor is now calling them "ATV Mini-trucks" http://www.offroaders.com/atv/ATV...

Nice looking truck! I have an NA model as well, but I'll be doing a turbo retrofit for the increased power. Mine has been put through MANY trials off road and on trails. I've pretty much tested every limit of the truck. Last time out, I broke my air-pack and lost my front brakes. The battery and too...

Re: The Cinder Block Loses a Wheel (and hub) PICS ON P15

You can fix it for less than $400 if you're resourceful... and that's for a fast find. You can probably score a disc brake Dana 44 front for $100 with some searching around. Drive-shaft won't be hard to piece together and brake lines should swap. Steering should be a bolt in, at worst you'd have to ...

Re: Large bumpers

Just slapping on a big bumper is probably going to be overkill. You need something appropriately sized for your vehicle and application. A Jeep Wrangler doesn't need a bumper as larger as say a Ford F350. Other factors come into play like; do you plan on mounting a winch, will it double as a recover...

My personal opinion, but I am NOT a fan of internal transmission coolers. I prefer a properly sized remote/external cooler.
